A Fun Little Suprise! (For Me)

Happy Sunday! I just got a fun notification that I thought I would share with you.

A while back, Bronwyn and I went to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle and had a great time with My Mom and newly adopted sisters. I took lots of pictures and posted them on my Flickr Page and also blogged about our experience. About a month ago, I was contacted by Emma Williams, the Managing Editor for the online publication SCHMAP! asking for permission to use one of my photos for their Seattle guide. Of course I agreed, and the guide is now published. My photo is this one:



I like this picture, but you should see the others that were also chosen to feature the zoo! Mine is pretty shabby when I look at those. But still, my ego is a little puffy (I'm like a chickadee in winter right now) because someone liked my picture enough to publish it! Here's a link to the Woodland Park Zoo Shmap feature, where you can see my photo as well as the others:

That IS fun, and they are great pictures. The flower is beautiful, and it looks like you could just reach out and touch the leopard!

I am so proud of you! The girls are delighted that you published a picture that you took while THEY WERE THERE!!!! It's a beautiful picture. I may have a picture somewhere of you taking that picture! I'm lucky to have such a creative daughter!
